It is with great pleasure that I welcome evervone to the Billy Bishop Legion in Vancouver , British Columbia,for the Power of Your Voice Metis Rendezvous
Today’s discourse provides us with the opportunity- to recognize the history and fundamental role
of the Metis Nation, First Nations and Inuit in shaping the identity of all. Canadians. I, and the
entire Liberal Caucus, believe that our country is made stronger because of your community’s
remarkable and countless contributions, and we remain committed to engaging in a renewed,
respectful, and inclusive process with all Aboriginal communities across this country.
I would like to thank the BC ‘Women’s Liberal Commission, the Aboriginal People’s Commission
in BC, and the Metis Citizen’s Society for working together and organizing this important event,
which provides an effective forum for promoting the rights of the Metis Nation as both
Aboriginals and citizens of Canada. moving forward, I believe that it is essential to have events
such as the Power of Your Voice Metis Rendezvous, which brings positive awareness to the
importance of supporting our Metis communiues throughout Canada.
Please accept my warmest welcome, and I hope vou all enjoy today’s discourse!
